Just in case, this might just be http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/7740 -
NM doesn't always notice changes because haldaemon doesn't always
notice changes.

I've been quite happy with how NM does its wake-up logic after coming
out of XO sleep, despite [1].  I'm using joyride-2271, so if it's
"clearly not working", perhaps it's a recent regression?  I can help
joyride-bisect or something.  I'd hate to have the baby thrown out
with the bathwather, if indeed you do prefer NM to re-do its wake-up
logic in this post-sleep case.

Is there a way to force NM to re-scan (do it's "wake" behavior) in the
GUI?  If not, and if NM won't notice you've lost the AP and re-wake,
your change will be useful when you just close/open and don't move
around but annoying when moving locations.
